Welcome to JA, how old is your current TV you want to connect your Video Recorder too?
I haven't heard from you in some time, assuming you need to convert from SCART output to HDMI input you can use a device such as the one here which costs around £10
Do let me know if you need anything clarified.
This suggests your fault is with the video player not output the signal so this is a hardware fault on the player itself, if you are confident your conversion box is powered up and setup correctly (converting scart to HDMI rather than HDMI to scart).
